Cal Harris acquitted in wife’s 2001 murder

Calvin HarrisIt has been 15 years and a total of four murder trials for New York millionaire and businessman Calvin Harris. This week, the wild ride finally came to an end as a judge acquitted him of killing his wife, Michele. I’ve been mulling that verdict over the last few days, dancing around writing a blog post about it but not knowing where to start. You see, if you have read my book Missing Wives, Missing Lives, you’ll know that I don’t believe Cal is innocent. His actions on the morning of September 12, 2001, when he claimed to discover his wife did not come home the night before just don’t sit well with me. He’d threatened to kill her in the past. The couple was in the middle of a bitter divorce. And yet Cal didn’t seem to even bat an eye when Michele’s abandoned minivan was discovered near the end of the long, winding Harris driveway with the keys still in the ignition. Instead of reporting his wife missing, he took her car to work with him that same morning and cleaned it out.

“Missing Wives, Missing Lives” Cover Reveal!

Missing Wives, Missing WivesI’m very excited to reveal the cover for my first book, designed by the talented Jacqueline Cross! Missing Wives, Missing Lives will be published this summer by RJ Parker Publishing, Inc. It will be available in paperback, eBook, and audiobook.

I have always been drawn to missing persons cases, especially those that have remained unsolved for many years. Missing Wives, Missing Lives will highlight true stories in which a wife has vanished, presumably at the hands of her husband, and the undying efforts of her family and friends to bring her home. I cover the tragic stories of Stacy Peterson, Susan Cox Powell, Michele Harris, Lisa Stebic, Dawn Viens, and many more. The families of these women have suffered through a horrific experience of not knowing exactly what happened to their loved one and they continue to search for answers years later. It is my hope that keeping the stories of these women alive will bring an end to the searching and give those families the closure they deserve.
